What is PRP Injections Therapy?

- Ligament sprains
- ACL injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Tennis and golf elbow
- Osteoarthritis (hip, knee, shoulder and spine)
- Torn rotator cuffs
What Does PRP Injections Therapy Cost in Santa Ana, CA?
PRP injection cost can vary from patient to patient based in part on the complexity of the treatment and number of sessions needed.
During your initial consultation, a treatment plan will be developed and the cost for your specific case is thoroughly evaluated and discussed. You’ll receive a more accurate cost assessment at that time.
Some procedures are not fully covered by insurance, so you may want to check with your insurance provider to see what their policy is with regard to PRP injection therapy. If you learn you’ll be responsible for payment, Coast Regenerative Medicine is pleased to offer financing options for their clients through CareCredit®.
How Does PRP Injections Therapy Work?
PRP injections therapy is a three-step process in which a small amount of blood is drawn and is then placed into a centrifuge to spin for several minutes at a high rate of speed. This serves to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood components. Lastly, the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is carefully injected into the injured area.
The exact mechanics of how PRP injections actually work in the body is still not entirely clear, but studies have shown that increased concentrations of blood growth factors work to help accelerate the body’s natural healing process.
What Are the Benefits of PRP Injections Therapy?
There are many benefits to PRP injections, and most patients who receive them are extremely pleased with the results. Some of the most common benefits include:
- Quicker healing time after injury or surgery
- Significant pain relief, over 80%
- Minimally invasive, non-surgical and 100% natural treatment
- Need for surgery can be reduced or eliminated
- Long-lasting results
